Dying and Painting Lace

The ladies in the ICQC-102 class have been painting and dying laces and ribbons. They got me wanting to create some pretties too; so here are some of my latest efforts.
 
The upper left corner has the painted (acyclic) pieces. The upper right corner has the Acid Dye painted/dipped pieces, and the lower center has the Procion MX Dye pieces.

Here are some of the Acid Dye Ribbons (rayon seam binding). All of the photos are after things have been rinsed, dryed, and pressed.

Hope you are having at least half the fun that these ladies are!

Looks like fun to me! I want to try dying ribbons too. The variegated colors are amazing.

Hello Kathy! Your hand dyed silk ribbons and embellishments are beautiful. I didn't take this class this time.... I didn't think I would have time to do it justice but now I see the fun you are having I may have to consider it for the future! Have a lovely weekend! :) x
